If you see “red” when brushing your teeth, you should not take it lightly. Because bleeding gums are always an alarm signal.
Bleeding gums are usually caused by inflammation of the gums (gingivitis). In this case, the problem can usually be remedied by particularly thorough oral hygiene. It is important that the trigger of the inflammation (usually bacteria) is eliminated. Periodontitis (inflammation of the periodontium) can also lead to bleeding gums. In this case, dental treatment is important, and careful dental and oral care at home is also an important part of the therapy.
The fact is: anyone suffering from bleeding gums should get to the bottom of the causes and take action against the triggers.
